I just replaced my old barstools with some new metal ones that I LOVE. I was happy to see the old ones go! When deciding who to give my old barstools to, I had a bit of an epiphany. Love those.
I knew my oldest two girls were in need of a desk so I decided to turn these 2 shanties into something CHIC!
Let me tell you…
This is a building project that requires very little building skill… Woohoo!
I started by spray painting the stools. This is the color I chose…
While that was drying I cut some planks from a furring strip for my shelves. Mine were all 15 3/4″. I stained them with Rust-Oleum Ultimate wood stain in Dark Walnut… I know. Shock.
After my stools dried I attached them with nails like this.
For the top I used a 20×48″ pine project panel for the top. You can get these at Lowe’s in several different sizes to fit your space. Mine was $16. I stained it and let it dry.
Then, I laid the barstools upside down on my top like this and used 1 3/4″ wood screws to attach the stools to the top.
That’s it! Pretty darn simple, huh?? And cost for me??? $18!! Woohoo! My kind of desk! Shanty to oh so CHIC! Here are a few more pictures!
Thank you so much for stopping by!!
Here are just a few more goodies I have made for the girls’ room!
I would love for you to share and pin their desk below!! Have a great weekend!!
